Assange Case Not About National Security, Just Narrative Control

“Julian Assange once said, ‘The overwhelming majority of information is classified to protect political security, not national security.’ As someone whose life’s work before his imprisonment was combing through documents of an often classified nature, he’d have been in a prime position to know. … As the persecution of the WikiLeaks founder continues to trudge on with the UK government’s granting the Biden administration permission to appeal a declined extradition request, claiming that it can safely imprison Assange without subjecting him to the draconian aspects of America’s prison system which caused the initial dismissal, it’s good to keep in mind that this is being done entirely for the purpose of controlling public access to information that is inconvenient for the powerful.” (07/08/21)
